BMW Powerlet Plug to USB

Does anyone know where I can find a Powerlet to USB plug? Powerlet is working on it, but it's not available yet. I see plenty of cigarette to USB applications but not Powerlet. I'm interested in powering my Garmin Nuvi and maybe a cell phone since I already have USB cables for both

That's what I do. Powerlet to SAE, SAE to USB.

That works well because while I use a lot of Powerlet, I have SAE inside of my tankbag, so I can use it in either place.

The first option from Burns Moto is 2 pieces which concerns me just a little. Hard wiring defeats the purpose of having an already wired BMW outlet. The homemade version is sort of bulky. We're close here fellas. Anyone else?

I did not hardwire the socket to the bike, I cut the attached wires short and added a powerlet plug to the end of the wires so it will plug into my powelet socket (or the BMW socket). You can buy just the plug end from Powelet (or BMW) for this. I even used a right angled plug which keeps the wires low profile for where they pass into the tankbag for the top panel mounted socket.
